We received a contribution from our children to go on a wine tasting and picnic outing at this venue. We were treated like royalty and had a most enjoyable wine tasting experience, followed by a very romantic laid back picnic by the river under some trees. Nice surroundings, no industrial or city noises, only the little brook that is left... More

The area in front of the main building is very social and great to spend a few hours with friends. They offer a comprehensive tasting and some platters with various foods. While we were there they also entertained us with their choir. Overall a very pleasant afternoon.

the environment is one of the highlights. You will enjoy the museum and the tastingroom, but the wines are generally flat and can not compare with others. But tastes are different and I am sure one will enjoy the atmosphere

This was the second stop on our private wine tour, so no idea what it cost to go in. It's a pleasant place and the staff were lovely. We particularly enjoyed the archaeological/historical museum (free), which was done to professional standard with enough exhibits for interest and not so many as to jade. The wine tasting was done properly by... More

This review is for the picnics that the venue offers. My husband surprised me by booking a picnic lunch for us last Sunday.The weather was perfect, very little wind. What I can say is this, the venue is really stunning. We decided to stop off next to the lake area instead of the normal picnic area and it was like... More

A group of us visited Solms-Delta on Tuesday (30 Dec) and what a pleasant surprise. After hearing about it so often we decided that it would be our first stop on the way to Franschhoek. The wine is really good, with the most interesting label designs. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and I do believe that because of them... More

This review is for the picnics this winery offers. Absolutely gorgeous area for a picnic. Food was very fresh and tasty. Wine, of course, was nice too. Very good value for money and a wonderful way to spend the afternoon with family or friends. We were there for the picnic, not wine or wine tasting, but were made to feel... More

Solms Delta is quite possibly the friendliest, most welcoming wine estate in the Boland region. Whenever I'm in the Cape or vicinity I make sure to pop around to this beautiful farm. The place is so much more than a wine farm though. Solms Delta takes pride from the fact that their farm is owned by a trust - the... More

Lovely wine tasting hosted by Sussanna. Very entertaining and gave us a good review on the wines as well as history and on the cultural activities within the community. My question, did I enjoy the wine or the host more...😊

Went with a tour party of 40, and horrified to find another two tour parties there! Lovely location, and a good background talk first. The archaeology museum is very well done, to a professional standard - excellent in fact. Seated on a verandah for a disappointing "tasting". Just 4 wines presented, a jokey presenting lady, and little background given,, and... More
